St. Paul, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The Minnesota Supreme Court has suspended Duluth attorney William D. Paul for failure to obey court rules and not cooperating with disciplinary investigations.
The court suspended Paul for a minimum of four months after the Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility filed a petition for disciplinary action in 2009.
It was also found that Paul failed to provide competent representation, failed to expedite litigation, and failed to act with reasonable diligence.
Over the past twenty years, he has received five admonitions, one public reprimand, and has been placed on probation twice.
